    Don't Copy That Chip 'n Dale Floppy

    The release of the super-meta “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers” with John Mulaney and Andy Samberg on Disney+ put us in mind of a movie from which it borrowed a hunk of its DNA: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”. We first toon, er, tune our dial to that classic, groundbreaking 1988 Robert Zemeckis-directed film, then look at its 2022 chip off the old block. Forget it, Dale, it’s Toontown....

    Thirty-three episodes of new live-action “Star Trek” have now concluded, and we’re going to talk about all of it. We bring some tough love for “Discovery” and “Picard”, which disappointed us. But all is not lost—there’s a lot of unabashed love for “Strange New Worlds.”...

    The MacGuffin Twins

    Put on your flying cloak and load up on pizza balls, because we’re here to talk about “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” This is an interesting one, because most of us agree that the movie is fun and inventive in a lot of enjoyable ways—but also entirely mishandles its villain. Can you love a movie that also make you angry? We try! Some of us fail....

Friends you wish you could hang out with more

The Incomparable is funny and cozy and interesting to listen to whether they’re reviewing new books, old movies, or superheroes. I especially love how the host Jason Snell is invariably supportive of every guest. He keeps the tone high and humorous and moving along.

Great show: expunge the word “like”

Love this show, the host and guests; however, the use of “like” as every third word is fatiguing. I suppose this is how people talk today, but at this point, it’d be great to expunge “like” from our vocabulary (even when it’s appropriate)

Drizzle Dry ,

Eh. It’s ok.

Quality of episodes depends on which guests are on. Some guests are good, like Antony Johnston, and others are awful.

It gets too woke at times. Attempts to cram feminism or pick your woke topic into conversations has left me rolling my eyes and deleting shows too often. Whether it’s lobbying for Hercules to be pansexual or counting the number of women in Batman Begins you can see where some conversations go.

Also yeah the girl who cannot like um speak you know like yeah without um and uh like needs to go you know like yeah.
